Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

This headlight washer(s) that pop up from front bumper came off during drive from ca to md. During the drive back temperature went into the freesing range. Was not aware that when wash the windshield these other washers pop up to washer the headlight. Anyways, they do and due to cold it got stuck in up position and eventually came off. Dealer initially said covered under warranty and now says that since have a scratch on side bumper someone tempered with the washer. However more importantly they said that it has never happened to anyone before. I said maybe not yet or in different region since this was when driving in much colder weather. Also, they also confirmed that it stucks in the down position when they put in a new one.
